Teacher and student Floyd County comments on integration
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

A WSLS reporter asked a Floyd County teacher how they felt about the possibility of integration. Katharine Dobyns, a seventeen-year teaching veteran, thought residents would act in the best interests of the county, and that she would continue to teach if that meant integrated schools. 18-year-old senior Charles Truman proffered a more pessimistic outlook; "I don't think it's gonna work."
